Mule Runtime 3.9.2 Release Notes

Nov 23, 2018

This document describes new features and enhancements, known limitations, issues, and fixes in Mule Runtime 3.9.2.

Be sure to read this document before you install this release. For reference, save these release notes to your hard drive or print a copy.

Changes

Regarding API Gateway capabilities:

Of the various bugs fixed, noteworthy is fix AGW-2631. The issue occurred when an API previously tracked was deleted from API Manager and then the runtime was restarted. Now, by default, in that scenario, all policies that were previously applied will continue to be applied, including existing contracts that are locally cached. If you want stricter security, you can control this behavior by specifying the following system property:

anypoint.platform.policies.on_api_deleted=block_api|keep_policies(default)

Upgrade Requirements

Issue Description

MULE-8817

MULE-15004

The HTTP listener’s socket server timeout default was changed from 0 to 60 seconds, while respecting the connectionIdleTimeout settings.
